I am still a recent (18 months) bilateral below-the-knee amputee and kidney transplant recipient. All caused by being a Type 1 Diabetic on insulin for over 50 years. I am now over-weight with at a weight of 118 kgs and a BMI of 39. I need to lose weight. Diet is not too much of an issue, just being careful and keeping everything in balance! Exercise is what I need. The Specialised Ability Centre Manchester is launching gym classes for amputees from next Friday and I have just received my personal chair gym, so exercise is becoming my Number 1 priority to lose weight over the next 18 months down to 100 kgs!
